About Catherine

Hi. I hope this profile helps you to get a better picture of who I am. I am a high school social studies teacher, and I have been teaching for 13 years. I currently teach Global History 9 & 10, both mainstream and self-contained sections. I also teach resource room. I have taught English 9, as well as Economics and Participation in Government. I have been a tutor on and off all the years that I have been teaching. I love social studies because it truly is a "story."

I am proficient in Microsoft Word, Power Point, Google Docs, Slides, and Google Classroom. I think that technology can truly help with a student's understanding of the material in front of them.

I enjoy tutoring because I like having a one-on-one connection with a student, and getting to the bottom of the material which might be confusing to them. Being a teacher is a wonderful job.

I like to use strategies like mnemonic devices to remember words, and I also think it is important to make connections to everyday things in order to better understand words.

I like to use flashcards, visual aids, and graphic organizers to help students remember their spelling words, and also to help with their studying. I am also proficient in Wilson Reading which can help with spelling.

I am New York State certified in Special Education K-12. I have been teaching in special education classes for 13 years. I am familiar with IEPs, and understand the goals and objectives that are noted.

I have been teaching social studies for 13 years. My main subjects are Global History 9 & 10, but I have also taught Economics and Participation in Government.

I hope to hear from you soon so that I can assist you with your studies!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Social Studies

I have been teaching history for 13 years. I teach Global History 9 & 10, but I have also taught Economics and Participation in Government. I have been a tutor for the subject, and also tutored for the Global History and Geography Regents.

Special Needs

I received my masters degree in Special Education. I have been teaching in the self-contained setting (including resource room) for 13 years. I have worked with students with special needs in both the classroom and tutoring setting.

Study Skills

I have been working in the resource room setting for 13 years. During that time, I have worked with students with special needs on study strategies and organizational skills. It is my goal to help students to become self-advocates and understand what strategies work best for them.
